Hosanna Anchondo and I had visited Crystal Bridges a couple of times while we’ve been dating and we love that place for a lot of reasons, but my new reason to love it is for how helpful and excited the staff was while I was preparing for our proposal and of course, we were blessed with snow, which made for some beautiful pictures in an already beautiful place! —Lee Larry
